panasonic blu ray
verizon motorola box
DT pro monitor 1000
DT Procenter 2000
DT Prosub 1000 r maybe HSU VTF-2
I currently do not have any and just running some slides on TV using USB as per recommendation from the VT30 forum.
Thanks in advance
This is the right place, ask and we'll all try to help out.
Let start with a sub cable, this is a 10' size but you want to get this High-quality Coaxial Audio. make sure you have extra cable to be able to pull out AVR or enough to move the sub about the room. Any extra cable can be coiled up and hide.http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
HDMI, pick your color, the high-speed will cover any 3D apps you want to try.http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...&cs_id=1024008
You may want to hard wire your 2112 to the INTERNET, so look into getting either Cat5 ot Cat6 cables, again pick your color, you'll not find better prices anywhere.http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...05&cp_id=10232
As for speaker wire, 14 AWG will be fine, but to play it safe the 12 AWG is only a few dollars more. 12AWG is better for runs over 50', but remember the length of your room is not the length of wire you may need, its always better to have more wire them you need then be 5 foot short. big thing to remember is t you may need to run the wire a different way if your wife or GF has anything to say about it. So that 30 foot may turn into 50 ft quickly, the length of the wire going to the mains should always be the same length, don't have one 3 foot and the other 8 foot your AVR will not like it.http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...=10239#1023902
Another thing you may want to consider is using banana plugs, the terminals on the DT speakers can be tight at times and if you have big fingers it sucks. Plus it looks way cool using the plugs, your friends will see these speakers are not the old spring-cli[p type and that you are serious about then [they don't need to know they cost very little]http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...&cs_id=1040115
Not sure if I missed anything if so please let me know and I try to fill in the gaps.
